'America's youngest CEO' to speak at CCU

Ephren Taylor, who at 24 was known as America's youngest African American CEO of a publicly traded company, will speak at Coastal Carolina University's Edwards Recital Hall on Thursday, March 22 at 7 p.m., as part of CCU's African American Celebration. The event is free and open to the public.

The Recital Hall is located in the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts.

Taylor has helped fund seven companies, raising billions in investment capital. By age 12 he started his first business, and at the age of 16 he made his first million. He has worked closely with corporations such as CitiGroup and Wal-Mart as well as city municipalities.

He is also the author of five books, including "How to Start a Company While Broke" and "250 Tips for Real Estate Investing."

The event is part of Coastal's annual African American Celebration, a series of events designed to highlight the art, history, music and theater of the African American culture. Other events are scheduled throughout the 2007 spring semester.
